Notification of Dispute: Kempsey Hospital HSA Schedules

Following members’ feedback regarding proposed changes to HSA schedules at Kempsey Hospital, and the subsequent meeting with affected members earlier today, the HSU has placed management’s proposed HSA duty schedules into dispute.

As a result, HSU members are to continue working to current schedules and not management’s proposed schedules that were to be introduced on Monday 12 July. This is to be maintained until all of the issues that you have raised are discussed and resolved.

The HSU wishes to thank those members who have provided feedback and who took the time to meet this morning. Your activism and concern for the safety of yourself and others has led to this dispute, and will help us to arrive at a more equitable arrangement.

Please inform your colleagues of the dispute and urge them to join the HSU and have their say. New members can join at or call 1300 478 679.
